WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES Pepper, cured meat, intense small berries and spice on the atypically subdued aromas of this particular bottling. The attack is dense and precise and not as supple and sweet as past bottlings at this early stage. Muscular black fruits, violets, herbs, roasted plum skin and pink pepper carry into and beyond the clean and deliciously tannic finish. This wine seems most similar to the gorgeous 2001, which is years away from reaching its plateau.

About This Producer


Pax Mahle produced a wide selection of vineyard-designate Syrahs from Northern California under this label for many years before leaving to begin another project, Wind Gap. Under the Pax label, he utilized indigenous fermentations, minimal handling, unobtrusive use of French oak and bottling without filtering or fining. Great care was always taken in the vineyards to produce the best fruit possible by maintaining the vines on an individual basis and ensuring low yields. In addition to many Syrahs, Pax also produced several white wines including Roussanne, Viognier, and a white blend. In 2009, with the departure of Mahle, the brand was re-named Donelan Wines.
